Creamy Tuscan Garlic Chicken

One more week left of school.  One.  As I look back at this last school year it has flown by!   I feel like we were just celebrating Christmas and now we are heading into summer.   We are all looking forward to the summer time at our house.  Bring on the BBQs, s’mores, swimming, and late nights!

We have been so busy with moving into our new house that we have hardly had any time for a home cooked meal.  This Tuscan Garlic Chicken was the first meal that I have made in a while and it is TO DIE FOR!!!

This meal tastes like it is straight from a restaurant.  I couldn’t even get over how amazing the creamy sauce was!  It has such a delicious creamy garlic taste with spinach and sun dried tomatoes.  We all fell in love with the first bite.  I couldn’t believe how easy and amazing it was!

Put this meal at the top of your must make list!  It was one of the best things our family has had.  You can even serve this over pasta making it a delicious meal.

You guys are going to love this just as much as we did!

  1. Awesome! I cook a great many boneless, skinless chicken breast recipes in the hopes of finding ones to add to my normal rotation that are tasty and relatively easy to make and rarely do I find one like this to add to the very top of the list. Thank you so much. Only changes were a smaller portion and fresh garlic and roma tomato instead of powder and sundried.

    1. Hi Pam. It can happen if the cream you’ve used it low in fat or, if you did use a heavy/double cream you may have had the heat too high. I’m not sure what country you’re commenting from, but here in the UK some people mix up cream with Elmlea double cream alternative which is made up from buttermilk and oils. This will most likely curdle!

      Hope this helps.

  2. OMG This was delicious! I just started the keto diet and have been looking for some low-carb recipes. This one is going in rotation! Instead of pasta, I just served it with steamed broccoli and it turned out great!

  3. This is going to sound a little dumb but on the Parmesan cheese i saw you said grated do you mean the same as in the shaker that some use on top of stuff. Just want to make sure i get the correct as making it for a big family dinner

  4. Creamy Tuscan Garlic Chicken was absolutely awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!
    My husband and I both are head over heels in love with this recipe.

  5. AMAZING! My husband said this taste like a fine dining meal. I made this tonight with shrimp instead of chicken and with frozen spinach instead of fresh. I’m doing Keto so I subbed out the pasta for zoodles. Also, Just wanna note I did add some almond milk when I needed it and it was perfect!. I hope to try more of your Keto friendly recipes

  6. This was a wonderful recipe! Its very easy to follow and your instructions were so clear! Thank you. It was also very easy to add things. The second time I made it I ended up adding onions and mushrooms to the dish and also just used fresh tomatoes instead of sundried tomatoes. I=The sauce is delish! It taste like an Alfredo sauce but better! I will have to come on your website more often. I even gave some to my golden retriever and husky, they approved! Thanks!

  7. This recipe is fantastic. I served it with zucchini spirals and even my grandchildren loved it! How awesome to have a low carb dish the whole family enjoys.

  8. Made for dinner tonight & was DELISH!!! No left overs!!! To be “healthy” I made brown rice. Still yummy! Will definitely make again, but thinking of trying it w/mashed potatoes!

    Thank you for such a good recipe!

  9. I think I’m going to try this recipe for a special night in this weekend. My only concern is with cooking the chicken with no seasoning prior to adding it to the sauce. I’m worried a bite of chicken with just the sauce may taste a little bland. Any recommendations, suggestions, or comments regarding this?

  10. So amazing!! Kids and hubby ate it right up. Kids had regular pasta and I had 0 carb nupasta and so delicious! Will definitely make again.

  11. Love this, I do add fresh mushrooms to the recipe!! It’s always a hit is my house, especially with a side of cauliflower potatoes !!!

  12. I made this for dinner last night. My husband who doesn’t normally like tomatoes said it was really good and worth making again. I cooked the sauce for a little longer and added slightly more cheese to help thicken. The seasonings as written were spot-on for us.

  13. Cook chicken as directed remove; then garlic for 30+ seconds. Then add 1/3 cup of dry vermouth and cook till thickened and syrup like. Then add remaining ingredients and follow recipe as directed.

  14. The dish was delicious and so very legal on my weight loss program. Thank you. Could you please provide a nutritional breakdown on this? I’m required to record that information.

  15. T his was an amazing dish, the family loved it and I made extra sauce, so this was good for two nights. It was so easy to make and so tasty. Thank you….Deborah

  16. I made a double batch of the sauce and added kale instead of spinach and I switched sundried tomatoes for sliced cherry tomatoes and added mushrooms

  17. Thank you for this yummy recipe. I used low fat cream and did not use the tomato. My husband not too crazy on sundrie tomatoes. I used a lot of spinach and green peas.
    Excellent!

  18. Very tasty, I’ve never cooked with sun dried tomatoes before so was unsure how I’d like them but they were delicious….the only change I made was I salted and peppered the chicken prior to cooking and added a few cloves of minced garlic along with the garlic powder as I love garlic…I served with “zoodles” as I follow a keto diet….I’d definitely make this again ?

  20. I knew the minute I read the recipe it would be delicious. It was sooo much more than I hoped for. Will definately be a regular at our house. Thank you

  21. My daughter has now made this recipe several times. I’ve had it twice and it is my new FAVORITE Italian pasta dish. Thank you for sharing. I know a lot of people say the following for something they really enjoy, which is, “if able, I’d give more stars than 5.

  22. This Creamy Tuscan Garlic Chicken looks so deliciously amazing, Alyssa! We did not include the sun dried tomatoes when we made ours recently because we ran out of the ingredient. Ours ended up tasting delicious but we reckon it would be more yummy when we got all the ingredients right. Cannot wait to remake this recipe again soon!

  23. Will be making this tomorrow night. Read through the comments and suggestions. Going to add mushrooms and use fresh tomatoes as I’m not much of a fan of sundried. Will also use some freshly grated nutmeg as this goes well w/ cream sauces and spinach.
